About Blair Athol Distillery

Blair Athol distillery, nestled in the Scottish town of Pitlochry, stands as a distinguished producer of single malt whisky. Integral to Bell’s whisky, it regularly offers a 12-year-old bottling.

Situated near the tranquil River Tummel, its origins trace back to 1798 when it was founded by John Steward and Robert Robertson under the name ‘Aldour’. Although initially facing closure, the distillery reopened in 1825 under new ownership.

Across the years, it changed hands several times until Arthur Bell and Sons acquired it in 1932 during a period of dormancy. Following a reconstruction in 1949, Blair Athol resumed operations, later expanding in 1973 with the addition of two more stills.

Blair Athol Whisky Cask Ownership - The Facts

Blair Athol is a renowned distillery located in Scotland with a rich heritage in producing fine whiskies. The rarity and quality of their products makes them desirable to collectors and enthusiasts, only increasing their value over time.

Whisky typically gains value as it ages and matures in the cask. The longer it remains in the cask, the more it has the potential to develop complexity and depth of flavors. We offer cask purchase programs that allow you to select the type of cask and aging duration, providing you with control over the maturation process.

Buying a cask allows you to own a unique piece of Bladnoch’s Kirkcowan Spirit production and a part of Bladnoch’s history. As the availability of aged and limited-edition whiskies decreases over time, the scarcity of these bottles can drive up their value.

Whisky has experienced growing popularity worldwide, particularly with the rise of collectors and investors seeking alternative assets. If the demand for premium Scotch whisky remains strong or continues to increase, it could positively impact the investment potential of your Kirkcowan Spirit (Bladnoch) cask. Recently we have seen the price of a standard bottle of Bladnoch rise from £40 to £80.
